Former FBI Director James Comey has revealed in his book A Higher Loyalty that President Donald Trump to investigate the infamous “Gold Showers” pee-tape allegations.

Speculation grew last year when a dossier was released on Buzzfeed that claimed that Russian operatives were trying to expose Trump’s personal obsessions and sexual tastes to gain compromising material on him. The most controversial of piece of the dossier was that Trump had a “number of prostitutes to perform a ‘golden showers’ [sic] (urination) show in front of him. The hotel was known to be under FSB control with microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything they wanted to.” Trump tweeted that the documents and allegations were just a “political witch hunt.”

In Comey’s book, he reveals that Trump wanted the FBI to prove that the rumors were false in order to reassure First Lady Melania Trump.

“He just rolled on, unprompted, explaining why it couldn’t possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie. I said it was up to him,” Comey wrote.

According to Comey, the conversation took place during a private dinner in January of 2017. He contemplated why he thought that the first lady might think there was a “one percent” chance that the allegations were true. “In what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn’t do that?” he writes.

Though Comey left the decision to investigate the rumors to Trump, he warned him that it could “create a narrative that we were investigating him personally.”

The former FBI Director also recalls an odd phone call from Trump, where he explains that the “golden showers” episode could not have happened because he is a “germaphobe.”

Comey quotes Trump saying, “Another reason you know this isn’t true: I’m a germaphobe. There’s no way I would let people pee on each other around me, no way.”

Trump also reassured Comey that he would never do it because he has Melania. Trump “has a beautiful wife and the whole thing has been very painful to her.”
